Building A Church & Going For Water in India

We were recently sent photos from Pastor Cornelius of workers building a church in a Dalit village.   As you can see, it is a rather crude structure.  No electricity, no running water, no air conditioner, etc., etc., but the Glory of God is just as much present in this church as it is in any majestic cathedral with gold trimmings.  Probably even more so. 

Other photos depict women going for water, sometimes walking great distances and carrying the load on their shoulders or head.   There is a great need for wells, especially in the extremely poor Dalit villages.   The cost to drill a single well is about $650.  Please consider contributing to this cause and may God’s richest blessings be yours as you do.

At times their only option is to get water where they can find it. In this case, a puddle
   Or a creek
Taking the water home. Can you imagine having to do this every day?      

The cost of drilling one well is $650.  Please consider giving towards this cause.
